    @wfadam Thank you for the quick reply and the reminder about learning mode. I wanted to be certain that my cross-site issues were handled accordingly. I ran a new scan with OWASP ZAP and my alerts were reduced significantly. Possibly false positives are what I am seeing but I am extremely happy to see a 90% reduction in alerts.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for the quick response and for the link. I will make the changes to the current version.

    Many thanks for the plugin. I will change my rating if WP allows it.

    Sorry Gioni,
    This post is of no importance any longer. I had Cerber on 3 of my 6 websites and got locked out of each one of them. I had to use your remove Cerber Unistall script on all of them. I then tried it on just one site, and again it would lock me out.

    During the initial install, Cerber does not recognize my IP address so I follow the instructions you laid out and made necessary changes to my wp-config.php. Once I had my IP address set, I would go through the setup. I tried several different settings and even not redirecting the login page.

    No matter what I tried I would get locked out, and trying to access the login page from my member’s platform would fail. I would go to /wp-login.php and it would fail. I could not access wp-admin.php it would redirect me. I tried multiple times with multiple ways of setting it up but to no avail, I would always get locked out of the system.

    I went back to another security program that is good, I just really wanted Cerber to be the answer. I really love the way you incorporated a lot of WordPress Hardening features into the program.

    On the google reCAPTCHA page I selected the v2 code and used that. For some reason that I’m not sure of the v3 just wouldn’t work.



    I had this problem as well. I went back to v2 so I could login. Hopefully, this is an issue he can address.

    Nope, I Just got the email again.


    Since WordPress 5.2 there is a built-in feature that detects when a plugin or theme causes a fatal error on your site and notifies you with this automated email.

    In this case, WordPress caught an error with your theme, Divi.

    First, visit your website ( and check for any visible issues. Next, visit the page where the error was caught ( and check for any visible issues.

    Please contact your host for assistance with investigating this issue further.

    If your site appears broken and you can’t access your dashboard normally, WordPress now has a special “recovery mode”. This lets you safely login to your dashboard and investigates further.

    Got a code snippet I could inject into functions.php or another workaround. To be honest with you I shouldn’t even worry about it. I have a custom login page, so wp-login.php is not needed.

    Thank you,

    I will update if I get another email from WP

    Thank you Gioni for the answer. I have always used Wordfence in the past, and do like what it provides. However, Cerber has a lot of features that Wordfence does not have. I have not installed Wordfence this go around and am running Cerber and Fail2Ban. From my perspective, and I am not a security expert, I feel that the combination of the two plugins for security and hardening is enough.

    Now I could be wrong but would be adding Wordfence to the mix be overkill? Because nobody can get into my site by conventional methods. wp-login.php and wp-admin are either closed off or you need the new link for admin. The other day I had to let someone get onto my site to investigate an error I was experiencing and they could not get in without me disabling Cerber. I feel confident that Cerber is providing the security that I need, meaning no one should be able to access anything and a brute force attack will get them kicked off so they should give up trying. Would you agree that I should be fully protected running Cerber and Fail2Ban?

    In case you are not familiar with Fail2Ban here is a link:

    Thank you,

    Thank you, that seems to have fixed the issue I was having. Everything seems to work great now.


    I currently running Version 11.2.2 of Front-end PM, on a server running Nginx, Varnish, Apache, and PHP version 7.2.27. I have the following files in the database:

    • wp_fep_attachments
    • wp_fep_messagemeta
    • wp_fep_messages
    • wp_fep_participants

    But for some reason in WordPress I still have a message that says, “Front End PM needs to database update”. When I select to proceed and start the update I am greeted with, “Front End PM update: You cannot update from your current version”.

    The database uses a different prefix than wp, but I don’t see where that would be an issue. The wp_fep tables are for Front End PM correct? I guess I could try removing the plugin, and manually cleaning the database of the above-mentioned tables and try from scratch. That might fix the issue, but I’m not certain.

    Do you have another suggestion or a way for me to manually update the database? I’ll wait back to hear from you before I proceed to investigate further. The site is still in development, but I would love for this plugin to work for me.

    Thank you,

    BTW- I’m running PHP-FPM but I can change my PHP to an older version if you need me to.

    Yes, there is not a problem with the plugin. It ended up being a server-side issue that I was able to correct. Now the plugin is not causing the 500 error. Thank you for reminding me of this post I made. The plugin is working at 100%.

    Thank you,



    It seems that I made the error in this case. The following link I placed was incorrect.

    auto_prepend_file = ‘/home/XXXX/public_html/wordfence-waf.php’

    Should have been:


    That corrected my issue.
    I wish WordPress would allow me to edit the above post so you didn’t have to read it all.

    Thanks for using Elevate – and appreciate you including it in your videos

    Not a problem at all. I’ll probably have the video online in a week depending on work conditions. I’ll post a link to it here if you like.




    I have the exact same error after the update to PHP 7.3.0. Searching for a solution as this plugin has not been updated in 3 latest releases.

    I’m thrilled that you loved the review. Quick question, I have used the AAM to hide certain things on the Admin Bar (Tool Bar now I guess) but it only works for back-end Admin page? I have a couple of features that are listed on a clients tool bar on the front-end. They do not have access to it, it pulls up a page access denied. That doesn’t look very professional.

    I can create a custom code for each user independently but if I had front-end features on the tool bar in AAM that would be perfect. Maybe that might make the list.

    All the best!

    I did not receive an error, just it would freeze and not allow you to crop and save the image. However, every time you would upload again, my media gallery would save another copy of the image.

    I placed the firewall back into learning mode and I was able to update the user background image and the avatar image.

    Thank you for that great little tip! I would think that I should be set now.

    Love Wordfence, I would purchase it if I didn’t have so many sites. If I ever happen to get a site that is making me any money then I will definitely be making a purchase.

    Side note: I build websites for others and always include the free version of Wordfence. I would hope that might drum up a little business for the fantastic security that you offer us.

    Thank you once again!
